Photosynth Update, September 8

  Photosynth just got its second update:

  • Improved upload success rate. This update should significantly reduce the number of synths failing with error code “0xA000000B”. The problem happens when a file is currupted on it’s way to storage. We’ve added additional retry logic, and beefed up validation on both the client and server.
  • Smoother installation on Internet Explorer. Our installer now marks the ActiveX control as “pre-approved” so the IE Information Bar doesn’t get in the way when viewing your first synth.
  • Better “Recent” synths. The recent synths view of the explore page now only features synths with at least 10 photos.

The first two fixes are in the installer, and all new installs of Photosynth will include them. Existing users won’t be prompted to upgrade, but you can install the upgrade here if you’re affected.

The team thanks everybody who reported these upload problems and is already working on the next update.

Did you know…

You can start adding photos already when in startup screen? Just drag and drop them anywhere on the green area.
